GlassBuild America 2013
During GlassBuild America 2013, Bromer Inc. demonstrated the capabilities of its Independent Sorter Skid prototype. The skid addresses the sorting issues common with traditional skids. Instead of loading the skid with the biggest and heaviest pieces of glass first, the ISS Skid holds glass vertically and at adjustable levels in the order needed by the end user, according to company officials.
In response to increased demand for tarp bodies that enable glass transporters to deliver clean glass unaffected by road conditions and weather, Unruh Fab has expanded its line of aluminum tarp bodies. The lightweight aluminum allows for more glass carrying capacity while providing corrosion resistance and better fuel economy, according to the company. Unruh Fab offers the aluminum tarp bodies in numerous configurations, with everything from metal carriers to tool boxes. Unruh Fab will exhibit at GlassBuild America 2013 in booth #623.Unruh Fab
